After making just 12 league appearances so far this campaign, it looks like John obi Mikel is coming to the end of his glittering Chelsea career.
The Nigerian international has won several major trophies including the Champions League during his long spell with the blues. He had joined Chelsea as a teenager back in 2007. Now after 10 years, Mikel is believed to be on the verge of an exit after falling down the pecking order. Nemanja Matic, who was brought to the club in a £ 20 million deal from Benfica, has been a regular first-team player.
